Four winning artists in Parsons Presbyterian Manor’s annual Art is Ageless® juried competition will be featured in the 2018 Art is Ageless Calendar produced by Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America.
“It’s Just a Stones Throw,” a painting by Janice Miller, “Merry Mary,” a Christmas entry by Joan Allen, “Conflict,” a photography by Max V. Good, and “Bookmatched Claro Walnut Table with Floating Top,” a Scultpture/3D piece by Charles Hugh will appear in the calendar when it is released this fall.
In addition, “Rustic Christmas Tree,” a Christmas entry by Nancy Korinek will be featured on one of the Art is Ageless greeting cards.
Works by local winners are automatically entered into a masterpiece level competition with winning art from 16 other PMMA communities. The winners are featured in the Art is Ageless calendar and notecards.
“The Parsons area is rich with talented artists, and Art is Ageless is a great way to showcase their work,” said Sharla Hopper, marketing director. “With four artists featured in the calendar, and one on the notecards, we couldn’t be more thrilled!”
